New Products Enable Extreme Performance for Customers Requiring Very High Capacity and Hybrid Architecture that Spans Public and Private Clouds

Solace, the leading provider of open data movement technology, announced today a new version of its Virtual Message Router (VMR) software and two hardware blades for its market leading 3560 appliance. The new products increase the already best-in-class performance of Solace’s open data movement platform, which lets applications and devices exchange data across clouds and datacenters using open APIs and protocols including JMS, MQTT, AMQP, REST and WebSocket.

“To power next-generation big data, e-commerce and Internet of Things applications, companies are turning to distributed applications made up of cloud-based microservices, which makes the real-time movement of data across clouds mission-critical,” said Shawn McAllister, Solace CTO. “These enhancements to our open data movement platform meet the needs of our demanding customers whether they’re horizontally scaling VMR software in public clouds, vertically scaling appliances in private clouds and legacy datacenters, or taking a hybrid approach that we uniquely enable.”

Version 8.2 of the Virtual Message Router improves upon the VMR’s already industry-leading guaranteed messaging performance by increasing throughput to 640,000 guaranteed messages per second in fan-out scenarios and 80,000 guaranteed messages per second when routing messages on a 1:1 basis. In addition to improving throughput 30-50% over previous versions of the VMR, the new version is also available as a Docker container. The Docker container enables new deployment options that have already been validated in a variety of cloud environments including Microsoft Azure, Google Compute Platform, and Red Hat OpenShift.

Solace has released a fourth generation of its guaranteed messaging product called Solace Assured Delivery Blade 4 and a new Solace Network Acceleration Blade with eight 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Together with the newest chassis, these products increase throughput to 5.5 million guaranteed messages per second in fan-out scenarios and 640,000 guaranteed messages per second when routing messages on a 1:1 basis. This represents a 50-120% improvement over previous versions, and extends the Solace performance advantage over all other data movement technologies. The new Network Acceleration Blade also enables each appliance to deliver 80 Gbps of data and accelerates the compression and encryption of messages.

Performance details for the Solace VMR and appliance are available on the Developer Portal at

Virtual Message Router 8.2, Assured Delivery Blade 4 and the 8x10GE Network Acceleration Blade are generally available now.
